Lake Kinneret (Israel): New insights into Holocene regional palaeoclimate variability based on high-resolution multi-proxy analysis (2018)
Journal Article
Vossel, H., Roeser, P., Litt, T., & Reed, J. M. (2018). Lake Kinneret (Israel): New insights into Holocene regional palaeoclimate variability based on high-resolution multi-proxy analysis. Holocene, 28(9), 1395-1410. doi:10.1177/0959683618777071

The southern Levant is a Mediterranean climate zone of complex variability in which uncertainty remains in regional palaeoclimate reconstruction. In spite of the proven value of diatoms in circum-Mediterranean palaeoenvironmental research, their pote... Read More

Reconciling diverse lacustrine and terrestrial system response to penultimate deglacial warming in southern Europe (2015)
Journal Article
Wilson, G. P., Reed, J. M., Frogley, M. R., Hughes, P. D., & Tzedakis, P. C. (2015). Reconciling diverse lacustrine and terrestrial system response to penultimate deglacial warming in southern Europe. Geology, 43(9), (819-822). doi:10.1130/g36807.1. ISSN 0091-7613

Unlike the most recent deglaciation, the regional expression of climate changes during the penultimate deglaciation remains understudied, even though it led into a period of excess warmth with estimates of global average temperature 1–2 °C, and sea l... Read More

Cyclotella paleo-ocellata, a new centric diatom (Bacillariophyta) from Lake Kinneret (Israel) (2015)
Journal Article
Houk, V., Reed, J. M., Cvetkoska, A., Houk, V., Van De Vijver, B., & Vossel, H. (2015). Cyclotella paleo-ocellata, a new centric diatom (Bacillariophyta) from Lake Kinneret (Israel). Fottea : journal of the Czech Phycological Society, 15(1), (63-75). doi:10.5507/fot.2015.006. ISSN 1802-5439

© Czech Phycological Society (2015). Large, subfossil populations of an unknown centric, planktonic diatom were observed in a lake sediment core from Lake Kinneret (Israel), which is here described as Cyclotella paleo–ocellata sp. nov. The new taxon,... Read More

Multi-indicator conductivity transfer functions for Quaternary palaeoclimate reconstruction (2012)
Journal Article
Reed, J. M., Griffiths, H. I., & Mesquita-Joanes, F. (2012). Multi-indicator conductivity transfer functions for Quaternary palaeoclimate reconstruction. Journal of paleolimnology, 47(2), (251-275). doi:10.1007/s10933-011-9574-1. ISSN 0921-2728

Diatoms (Bacillariophyceae; single-celled algae) and ostracods (Ostracoda; shelled microcrustacea) are known for their sensitivity to salinity. In palaeolimnology, the potential has yet to be tested for quantifying past salinity, lake level, and by i... Read More

The last glacial-interglacial cycle in Lake Ohrid (Macedonia/Albania): testing diatom response to climate (2010)
Journal Article
Reed, J. M., Cvetkoska, A., Levkov, Z., Vogel, H., & Wagner, B. The last glacial-interglacial cycle in Lake Ohrid (Macedonia/Albania): testing diatom response to climate. Biogeosciences Discussions, 7(10), (4689-4714). doi:10.5194/bgd-7-4689-2010. ISSN 1810-6277

Lake Ohrid is a site of global importance for palaeoclimate research. This study presents results of diatom analysis of a ca. 136 ka sequence, Co1202, from the northeast of the lake basin. It offers the opportunity to test diatom response across two... Read More

Southwest Scottish Crannogs: using in situ studies to assess preservation in wetland archaeological contexts (2008)
Journal Article
Lillie, M., Reed, J., Inglis, R., & Smith, R. (2008). Southwest Scottish Crannogs: using in situ studies to assess preservation in wetland archaeological contexts. Journal of archaeological science, 35(7), (1886-1900). doi:10.1016/j.jas.2007.11.029. ISSN 0305-4403

This paper presents the results of in situ monitoring of waterlogged burial contexts in southwest Scotland. The sites investigated are Iron Age crannogs (lake dwellings) which have a proven waterlogged archaeological component, and which are being as... Read More
